Luscious infinity scarf for spring

Know you are all wondering if, indeed, spring will ever come. Perk up your spirits with an easy infinity scarf knitting pattern in a lovely spring colorway. I chose this scrumptious baby alpaca chunky by Cascade Yarns, 2 skeins from my yarn stash, color 634, which is a lovely lilac or lavender. It's a free pattern and although very easy, the knitted fabric is interesting on both sides.

The pattern was designed by Jenny Withrow, and it's a great solution for a quick gift, which is my intention, a birthday gift for my granddaughter to wear with sweaters or a jean jacket.

For a similar bulky weight yarn, use a US 10 needle (6mm). Cast on 30 stitches.
Row 1: knit
Row 2: *P1, K2*

Repeat the two rows until you run out of yarn. Twist once for the infinity design and sew together. Finished width is about 8 inches. The infinity scarf can be widened by casting on multiples of 3. Finished circumference about 44 in (112 cm). Widths and finished circumferences will of course vary, depending on your yarn's gauge.

The designer suggests using a mattress stitch to sew the two ends of the scarf together. The only change I would have made in knitting this scarf pattern would be to add a crochet provisional cast on which enables a Kitchener stitch graft of stitches at the end.

But all in all, I think Charlotte FitzGerald will be very pleased and I thank Jenny for her pattern.
